Christine Lefebvre Design specializes in small-scale museum exhibitions with a focus on rich, detailed, and thoughtful graphics.

Prior to launching her own design studio, Christine Lefebvre worked for internationally-renowned museum design firms: Christopher Chadbourne & Associates in Boston, MA and Gallagher & Associates in Washington, DC. She has more than twelve years’ professional experience in environmental graphic design and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in design from Syracuse University, with additional training
at the Boston Architectural College. Her work has been recognized by AIGA (the professional association for design); and the Society for Environmental Graphic Design.

Current and recent clients include Smithsonian Gardens, the Newseum, the National Law Enforcement Museum, the Smithsonian National Postal Museum, and the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden.

Christine has volunteered extensively for AIGA: she previously served on the Boston chapter's board of directors, and directed the 2011 AIGA “BoNE Show” (Best of New England Design) competition and awards show. She mentors young designers through the DC chapter's “Shine” program and volunteered as a children’s reading tutor through Reading Partners DC.
